Admission to Forms 2 - 5

The criteria for admitting pupils to places in Forms 2 to Upper Sixth have been approved by the Board of Governors of Methodist College Belfast. The application of the criteria is delegated to an Admissions Panel consisting of the Principal, the Vice Principal (Admissions) and one other member of the Senior Leadership Team.  Consideration will be given to any medical or other problem that may have temporarily affected a student’s academic performance.  This needs to be supported by appropriate documentary evidence.  A pupil will be admitted only where their admission will not prejudice the efficient use of resources.
Entry to Forms 2 to 4

Applications should be received by the College by the middle of April each year to allow information to be sent to parents regarding the entrance assessments which are held in early May each year.

The decision of the Admissions Panel will be based on the following evidence of academic ability:

1. The two most recent school reports;
2. Assessments set by the College in English, Maths and Non-Verbal Reasoning;
3. Any other appropriate evidence of academic ability and/or potential.

Please note that only in exceptional circumstances (e.g. a family move necessitating a change of school) will new pupils be admitted to Form 5.
